Short description/annotation
From master storyteller Kristin Hannah, worldwide bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Four Winds, The Women is the story of a generation, of epic love and profound loss. It is both an intimate portrait of a woman coming of age in a dangerous time and a story of a nation – and a world - divided by war.
Description

The journey of their lifetime . . .

Women can be heroes, too’. When twenty-year-old nursing student, Frances “Frankie” McGrath, hears these unexpected words, it is a revelation. Raised on California’s idyllic Coronado Island and sheltered by her conservative parents, she has always prided herself on doing the right thing, being a good girl. But in 1965 the world is changing, and she suddenly imagines a different path for her life. When her brother ships out to serve in Vietnam, she impulsively joins the Army Nurses Corps and follows his path.

As green and inexperienced as the young men sent to Vietnam to fight, Frankie is overwhelmed by the chaos and destruction of war, as well as the unexpected trauma of coming home to a changed America. Frankie will also discover the true value of female friendship and the heartbreak that love can cause.

The Women is the story of one woman who goes to war, but it shines a light on the story of all women who put themselves in harm’s way to help others. Women whose sacrifice and commitment to their country has been all too often forgotten. A novel of searing insight and lyrical beauty, The Women is a profoundly emotional, richly drawn story with a memorable heroine whose extraordinary idealism and courage under fire define an era.

A powerful, stirring, wind-swept tale set in Depression-era America that makes your heart break and soar in equal measure. An escape into the past with timely echoes to the present. Kristin Hannah is a classic storyteller and The Four Winds sees her at the top of her game

A real page-turning read. Best book I’ve read all year

I didn’t just love this book, I became obsessed with it . . . The characters were flawed and vulnerable, strong and naive, and Hannah has delivered a masterclass in all the different ways love can both save us and destroy us

Epic . . . By the end, I was surrounded by snow-drifts of tissues damp with my tears

Great characters, great plots, great emotions: who could ask for more in a novel?

Movingly written and plotted with the skill of Greek tragedy. You’ll keep turning the pages until the last racking sob
